Windows 7: Is it possible to scan the computer for outdated drivers?

Here is a tutorial than many members prefer for screen shots because we don't want to off site to see something. We also don't want to tick on a word like (Google) and not know where it is going to send us.

Example:
Someone post: Tick Here to see what problem I'm having.

No way in hell I'm ticking on Here. Because I have no way of knowing where that Here sends me until it's to late.

Sorry, I just realized that I have to know something. Layback Bear's tutorial method - does the attachment appear full picture or as a link only, until you click on it?. If it is full picture, is it possible to make it appear a link only and not the full picture, until clicked on? This, when uploading screen shot from my computer. So, no 'hyperlink method' as in the you tube videos is possible.

Things appear like this when you follow the tutorial.
When you read the tutorial you will discover that their is a size limit.
